Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Literacy First Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

We are Blessed to have this school. Our child has excelled every year and I know with a public school he would not have had the opportunities he has had at this school. Class size is 20-23, and the extra help the teachers provide are beyond what I ever dreamed!
